Rule Dont key your body language to your cards

Nothing about your gestures or body language should be keyed to your cards. Ideally, the two things should be independent of one another. (In the movie Rounders, the character played by John Malkovich has an «Oreo tell» - he puts a cookie up to his ear and fiddles with it when he has an unbeatable hand. This would never happen in real life. Experienced players would pick up on this in a minute. They would notice the connection and file it away in the back of their minds.) You shouldn't have any body movement that can be tied to the strength of your hand. One way to do this - a popular way - is to keep the two things on a separate and parallel track, your gestures and your play.
